Something very interesting was that Canada ran a successful offense for three years at NC State and Dave Doeren still fired him. At the time, Doeren was 18-20 overall. Seemed a shocking and questionable move at the time. Since then he has gone 7-6 and then 8-4 respectively. This past season he had his first winning season in ACC play going 6-2 with wins over FSU and Louisville. The losses were to South Carolina in the opener, then on the road at #9 Notre Dame, a 7 point loss at home to #6 Clemson and on the road at Wake Forest. Only the Wake loss is questionable, really. This follows him going 15-1 at Northern Illinois before taking the Wolfpack job. Why is that important? Canada has bounced around quite a bit. Matt was Doeren's OC and QB coach at Northern Illinois for one year at 2011, but left to go handle both spots at Wisconsin for a year. Then he reunited with Doeren back as OC/QB coach for 3 years at NC State before being fired. He then spent a year at Pitt and when couldn't get a head coaching job at East Carolina jumped to LSU. I wondered when we hired Matt why he had moved around so much and why Doeren who hired him twice for 4 seasons at two spots would fire him. It should be noted Doeren is a defensive guy. As long as we get a quality quarterbacks coach and damn good schemer/teacher I have no problem moving on from Canada. The question is does Ed have that guy? The Hugh Freeze stuff comes up because Ed gave Hugh his first college job as head coach at Ole Miss. I do not think Hugh runs the offense that Ed would want, though.
